Live Tiles in Mango discussed–“very reliable”

In the above video Brandon Watson discusses the new Live Tile features with one of its developers, Thomas Fennel.

Interestingly they mention that Live Tiles was nearly cut as a feature, which leaves us to wonder what Windows Phone 7 would have looked like without them.

Of note is that towards the end the reliability of the service was discussed, and which Thomas called “very reliable”.  Hopefully this means Mango will iron out the issues affecting many of our Live Tiles apps which tend to suddenly stop working.
